Happy Birthday True Friend


True Friend – Twila Paris

Sitting side by side

Sopranos in monogrammed sweaters.

Kneeling by the bed

Praying until we fell asleep

Standing on a Sunday

Singing songs with Spirit

Lying on the bed

Sharing hopes and dreams

Running back and forth

Trying to approximate tennis

Sitting in the kitchen

Making haystacks…again

Staying up too late

You always made it later

Opening the Word

To challenge, teach, and comfort

Hugging in celebration

Or grief

Or to say hello

Or to say goodbye

Sharing memories

Of friendship


Lack of dates

Prayers made

Prayers answered




Happy Birthday

My precious Friend
